One Man & His Blog

Posting a Blog Post From Facebook

Good morning all.

I’m posting to this blog in a whole new way this morning. I’m actually typing this in Facebook, using the new Blog It Facebook app released by Six Apart over night.

Now, it’s not massively sophisticated. No WYSIWYG. No tagging, or categorising. With a bit of luck we’ll see some of those levels of sophistication developing as time goes on.

And, much to my surprise, it supports for more platforms than the 6A Trio (Movable Type, Vox and Typepad). You can post to both the .org and .com flavours of WordPress, to Blogger and to Livejournal as well. And you can set it to auto-notify services like Twitter and Pownce when you post.

It’s a neat little way of linking your blog and Facebook more closely, though, and that appeals to me.
